Mundane Link Course

This course reminds me of Harmony - course deteriorating and houses aren't even built yet. You would think the developer would have the course in Augusta National condition to attract homebuyers. Fairways were nice, green OK but rough was way to high. Lost a ball two feet off the green. Areas around greens and tee boxes were covered in weeds. High rough resulted in slow play looking for lost balls. Also, like Harmony, scorecards did not represent total yardage from different tees. Played the 6,000 yard white tees and it was more like 6,300. Starter said green tees were 5,700 yards but card said 5,300. How much does it cost to order new scorecards? Play was slow on a hot summer day and there is no shade anywhere to wait. Plant a few palm trees near the tee boxes.

Fun

Had a good time, and the course was in good condition. They need to get pin placements straightened out; not consistent. Not sure they are strong supporters of golfnow bookings. Said i couldn't be checked in till 30 minutes before tee time; never ran into that before.

Making Improvements

Nice to see crews putting drainage on hole one. Like to see ruff trim down a bit. Hate losing a ball three feet off fairway.

Beautiful course, horrible drainage

Have played this course many times. Its challenging but fair. It has rained almost every day, like it does in Florida and this course holds water for long periods of time. Even with 24 hours of 90 degree weather and no rain this golf course was still mushy wet. No cars in the fairways and balls pluging.

Tee to green

Over all the course was good. It is laid out well, distances for each of the holes is good, the greens well manicured,. The problem we had was that the 1st cut of rough along every fairway and around every green was so thick an deep, if you hit into it( which we did ) you rarely would find your ball. We did not feel it was acceptable to be saddled with a “ lost ball” penalty on at least half of the holes. I would loved to have hit every fairway and green, which we eventually did, but without losing a ball for being a yard or two into the rough. To be fair, we did not relay this information to the pro shop because of weather, but we also felt they would already know this.

Venetian Bay

Golf course was in good condition, greens were a bit slow but were in good condition. Our round got cut short due to lightning in the area. I would recommend playing this course.
